to play chicken with our economy. about 85 of us voted for that and now there democrats who said we don't love every part of the president's proposed compromise, but we center to make sure we don't go over the cliff and we give the certainty, ne97% need e tax cut. what plan b appears to be is demonstrating that maybe speaker boehner is unserious and doesn't really care about going-over the fiscal cliff. >> we know where the situation stands. let's be real. combined with the stress that americans are under right now as we watch these children be laid to rest in newtown, all of these things bring home the realities of life and compromise and what needs to be done not only with gun control, but as the president said, the immediate issue of this fiscal cliff. why put the american people through this kind of stress. i want to play what bernie sanders said about the compromise on social security. not everyone will be happy with a deal if it is reached on both sides. >> just a few minutes ago i had a press conference with all the organizations. they are clear and they said you know what, we sa

us, the very latest that you have been able to figure out about why this happened? >> reporter: well, i'll tell you, if the shooter in this case was trying to erase his digital footprint, he may have succeeded. because investigators are telling us that that smashed computer that you referred to was so badly damaged, presumably by the shooter himself, that they are having a hard time retrieving data from the hard drive. but they're not giving up. they're still working on it because they want to try to examine it for any e-mails he might have sent, for any writings he left behind, to learn about any websites that he might have visited. and also, today, we are learning the new gruesome details from the autopsy of nancy lanza, his mother. we're here in front of the house that she shared with her son and they are saying that she was shot four times in the head while she was sleeping in her bedroom, shot by her own son before he went on to that school to kill 26 children and adults. he died of a single shot. we also learned from the medical examiner that he said he was told that the shoote

. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right, jenna. first of all the report concludes there was no protest prior to the attack. that al qaeda is not dead. it has metastasized. that its followers have a new home in eastern libya. and that the benghazi on 9/11 was a significant defeat for the united states. it killed 4:00 americans including our ambassador. it also shuttered our diplomatic security presence in eastern lib. >> as well as a sizable cia operation. within the last hour a senior democrat at the closed classified briefing said there were systemic failures at seniors levels of the state department. >> i think the conclusion was very stark, very candid, very honest and told us the following. the mistakes were made, lives were lost and lessons need to be learned. first america can not retreat from a dangerous world. it is important for us to be there, to not only protecting our values but protecting american citizens. >> reporter: the report states that in the summer of 2012 the security conditions on the ground prior to the attack in benghazi were consistently d

was that he talked about appealing to the american people. and obviously this is something that he's been used to doing as he's been campaigning and tried to do this on the fiscal cliff as well. he made it very clear he will be using the bully pulpit to try to persuade americans and to really sort of seize the moment of just how people have responded differently to the shooting. let me tell you, he had -- he has talked -- the white house talked and he laid out some things he would like to see in this event in the briefing room. he talked about the assault weapons ban, banning high capacity ammunition clips, closing the gun show loophole. and also you mentioned mental health, which i think is something that would be easier to push, kind of in a bipartisan fashion. the big question too is sort of what you talked about, dealing with the culture that glorifies violence. those were his words. how do you do that? that is still to be seen. >> reporter: >> what about the gun law? this is an affluent group of people. how would the white house bring the nra to the table in a very sort of high pressure t

out of d.c.? >> speaker john boehner woke us up. i expected after the brief statement that he made the market would come in much more than it has. i am kind of impressed we haven't seen the market down quite significantly. it means we will look at a nice year-end rally. liz: all w he did was speak 45 seconds. we are coming off of two days of double-digit jumps in the dow jones industrial in the rearview mirror. but let me quickly ask you, volatility of about six or 7% depending on what second you're looking at it when a day for most of it the market was meandering. >> remember where we are at. coming at the end of the year, a lot of traders have hung up their books, does not take much to move the market one way or another. i do agree, this market is a santa claus rally. the market saying fiscal cliff, so what. more income means spending cuts and the politicians will eventually get it together. playing poker with each other, john boehner hurt the market when he said the market will take a nosedive tomorrow. this will go back and forth and every day do we have a settlement, don't we?
